November - Remembering the Dead
November is the month in which Catholics traditionally remember their dead. Some schools celebrate a 'Bethany Mass' (a Mass of the Holy Souls to which families are invited, especially those who have been bereaved in the past year). There is also the traditon of inviting families to complete November Lists and to place these on or before the altar during November.

An Introduction to the Mass
A new short briefing paper has been prepared: an introduction to the Mass for those unfamiliar with the Catholic liturgy. This may be a helpful resource to give to new staff who are not Catholics and attending Mass for the first time. It may also be useful for Catholics who want to learn a bit more.
